1991 John McCrae (Balvenie) 26 Year Old "Hepburn's Choice" K&L Exclusive Single Barrel Cask Strength Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml)
Review Date: 11-17-2018
The last time that K&L had a cask from this distillery it sold out in a very short time. After tasting this selection, I can see no reason that this will not happen again. There is a very pretty almost delicate but pronounce wax and honey nose . The mouth feel is velvet and cream with nice lush honey like flavors. There is a dry and long finish.

1997 Hector Macbeth (Glenfiddich) 21 Year Old "Hepburn's Choice" K&L Exclusive Single Barrel Cask Strength Blended Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml)
Review Date: 11-16-2018
From what I have tasted so far,the single malt casks that the team from K&L purchased this year in Scotland are not only high quality and tasty but also offer a broad range of flavors and styles. The Hector Macbeth is a lighter single malt with a nose that is sweet with a subtle savory note. In the mouth it is soft and light and just rolls on the tongue with delicate malt and honey flavors. In addition, there is nice concentration to balance out this package out.

1987 L'Encantada 30 Year Old "Del Cassou #14" Bas-Armagnac (750ml)
Review Date: 11-08-2018
The single estate Armagnacs from L'Encantada are unique and interesting. Each one has its own individual personality . The 1987 Del Cassou has a nice nose of warm dried fruits. In the mouth the dark fruit flavors are pretty and round with a hearty undertone. There is a hint of spice and there is a long mouth coasting finish. With just a little water, maybe one or two drops , the Armagnac opens up and is more expressive. It is softer in the mouth with a creamy aspect to it.

2015 Sesta di Sopra Rosso di Montalcino
Review Date: 11-05-2018
I think that Sesta Di Sopra is one of the best producers of Rosso Di Montalcino and Brunello Di Montalcino that K&L offers. The wines are always delicious , serious and structured. The 2015 Rosso is no exception. There is a lot of wine in the bottle ,especially at this price. It is a medium to full bodied wine with layers of complex red fruits and earth, all balanced out.

Another good example of cask strength grain whisky. The Port Dundas showed best for me without water. The nose was expressive with delicate caramel notes.

1991 Invergordon 26 Year Old "Old Particular" K&L Exclusive Single Barrel Cask Strength Single Grain Scotch Whisky (750ml)
Review Date: 09-07-2018
Single barrel cask strength grain whiskeys have been very popular at K&L. This selection of Invergordon is a good reason why. It is soft , mature and mellow. Without water the nose is reserved and opens up with a splash of water showing pretty floral and caramel aromas. Without water, in the mouth it is reserved again, but really opens up with some water becoming creamy with subtle soft spice. Interesting and easy the Invergordon is worth taking a look at.

Inverroche Amber Gin (750ml)
Review Date: 09-03-2018
When I first saw that K&L had a new gin I thought that there was not need to offer a new one because so many good ones are already in inventory. I was wrong, the Inverroche gins are all both tasty and interesting and add new taste experiences. The Amber is unique and delicious. The nose has subtle and delicate juniper notes that sit on top up a rich and almost burnt honey like aromas. In the the mouth it is full and creamy with a rich honey like and nut like flavors but it is not sweet. It will taste good alone on with tonic water.

Kilchoman selects the best heart of what they distill, taking a very clean cut of the fresh distilled whiskey. This cask reflects this with its beauty and purity.
